Academics & Research

Inherent to being at the leading edge of reproductive genetics, multiple pregnancy management, and fetal therapy is the commitment to developing new methods, and teaching the field through lectures, training, and the published medical literature. Dr. Evans routinely lectures to physicians all over the world, and has published more than 1200 scientific articles, reviews, abstracts, and book chapters. He has published over 30 textbooks including Prenatal Diagnosis, which was translated into Chinese and became the "bible" for genetics in the country.

Over the last 30 years, our research has focused on a number of key areas related to the health of pregnancy, and we have played a leading role in:

  • CVS
  • Multifetal pregnancy reduction
  • Screening for genetic risks (e.g. Down syndrome)
  • Finding fetal cells in maternal blood
  • Early amniocentesis
  • Early CVS
  • Fetal muscle biopsies for Duchenne muscular dystrophy
  • Medical correction of birth defects (e.g. congenital adrenal hyperplasia)
  • Fetal surgical correction of anomalies (e.g. obstructed bladders, congenital adrenal hyperplasia)
  • Fetal genetic/stem cell transplants to treat X-SCIDs (the bubble babies)
  • Patient's understanding of risks and options
  • How patients "frame" decisions
  • Re-engineering fetal monitoring in labor
